When selecting Innovative's polyurethane motor mounts, understanding durometer ratings is crucial. Durometer ratings indicate the hardness or firmness of the polyurethane material used in the mounts. Innovative Mounts offers a range of durometer options to cater to various performance needs. Let's delve into this important factor and how it influences your motor mount selection.
Durometer is a measure of material hardness, specifically how resistant it is to indentation or deformation. In the context of polyurethane motor mounts, durometer gauges the stiffness or softness of the polyurethane compound used. Durometer ratings are typically expressed on the Shore A scale, which is suitable for measuring the hardness of flexible materials like polyurethane.
The Shore A scale is commonly used to rate the hardness of elastomeric materials, including polyurethane. Durometer values on this scale typically range from 0 to 100, with higher values indicating greater hardness or stiffness. Here's a breakdown of how durometer ratings on the Shore A scale relate to polyurethane motor mounts:
Selecting the appropriate durometer for your polyurethane motor mounts depends on your specific needs and driving style:
